The film «Begstvo k istine» (Escape to verity) by the State TV and Radio Company «Region-Tyumen» became the winner in the international contest of amateur and professional films «Bereginya-2014».
This information was given on the website of the TV and Radio Company. The festival has been conducted in Archangelsk for the fourth time. This year not only Russian but also foreign authors from Belarus and Finland became its participants. More than 60 works were demonstrated. The contestants from Moscow, Salekhard, Archangelsk, Ufa, Vladikavkaz and Minsk represented amateur and professional, fiction and documentary films. The State TV and Radio Company «Region-Tyumen» presented the film about Anna Nerkagi – the northern woman-writer. As the author of the film Yulia Murzabulatova explains, the nomination, in which the film won the victory, was called «The soul of the people». And, really, who else but Anna Nerkagi is the soul of Nenets people? The author made an inscription to the photo of Anna Nerkagi: «How is able the soul, as big as tundra, be placed within such a small woman?»
When Anna Nerkagi «went away to tundra», having become a remarkable author and later a famous writer, many people predicted loss of her creativeness. But that, what should have become oblivion, turned to be search for only possible verity. Anna Nerkagi, as she says herself, is «a little worker of the God». Through her work he makes an uninterrupted prayer about her people. She is strong in her spirit in a fragile world, thus the film unit saw Anna Nerkagi.
The cameraman of the film Sergey Lykasov recalls the process of the work. He says that for the first time he faces with the question, what belief for a person is. He found much for himself. Probably, people, who watched the film, would open something for themselves that they had never thought about, as he notes.
